Youth Ministry

Youth Programs at St. Paul’s are a vibrant part of our ministry. Ably directed by Kelly Moore-Spencer, they engage teenagers in the life of the church here at home and open their eyes to the Lutheran community at large.

Youth Group Grades 7 – 12

The first  St. Paul’s Youth Group outing for Grades 7-12 was in August – Mini Golf and Ice Cream.

Grade 6 Youth Group

The first St. Paul’s Group outing for Grade 6 was in August – Mini Golf and Ice Cream.

This is a new youth group that we are creating. There will be activities scheduled monthly, and will be created for just grade 6, some activities will be joined together with youth in grades 7 – 12.

Sr High Sunday School – Grade 9 through 12

Beginning Sunday, September 18 – 9:15 am – 10:15 am—Youth Room

Join Miss Kelly for a weekly discussion on Bringing Faith into our Lives. This will include listening to and looking closely at the words to your favorite songs, books you may be reading and current events.  The first and last Sunday of each month you will be doing service projects that may include, helping with stocking the food pantry, creating packages for St. Paul’s college students, making cards for St. Paul’s homebound parishioners, and wrapping Christmas gifts for Spirit Trust Lutheran Home. On weeks that Confirmation class is not held the confirmands are invited to join this class.

Recently, older students from our sister congregation in Tanzania have traveled to Central PA to be counselors at the camps. It is a wonderful exchange of cultures and worship practices.
